Carol has been in contact with Baker Dolphin who have come up with the following proposal. Need some idea of numbers interested.

Further to our telephone conversation with regards to the trip to Bruge for Bristol Craft Brewers. I am pleased to be able to enclose a suggestion for you. I am sure that alternative dates are available, but this will give you a starting point.

Departing on 15th June 2018, our prices will include the following:-

• Exclusive departure for your group members
• Three days executive coach hire
• Fully fitted with semi reclining seats with seat belts, forced air ventilation and WC
• Return ferry crossing to Calais
• Your choice of local pick up points
• 2 nights at the Academie Hotel – Bruge
• Guided tour of the De Halve Maan Brewery
• Breakfast at the hotel
• Full Use of the coach for local excursions, subject only to drivers regulations
• All tolls, taxes, mileage and parking charges
• Services of a professional driver

Day 1

We depart from Bristol and make our way to Dover for the short sea crossing to Calais. On arrival we make our way to our hotel where we enjoy the next two nights inclusive of bed and breakfast.

Day 2

Today you have a day at leisure to sample the delights of Bruges. This ancient settlement on a network of canals and rivers is an absolute delight. Take a cruise around the canals or a horse drawn carriage through the streets, and shop for pretty lace or delicious chocolates. We will visit the brewery this afternoon and they will give us an informative tour of their premises and some time to sample their produce.

Day 3

A little time this morning for some final shopping before saying farewell to lovely Bruges. We make the short journey to Calais for the ferry crossing to Dover and an early evening arrival in Bristol.

Academie Hotel is a luxurious 4-star property set in a prime location in the centre of Bruges. Local places of interest include St. Jans Hospitaal - Hans Memling Museum, Minnewater and Church of Our Lady

Guests of the hotel can make use of the following room facilities: clock radio, climate control, coffee/tea maker and direct-dial phone. Beds: Hypoallergenic bedding is available. Bathroom amenities include hair dryer and makeup/shaving mirror. Housekeeping services are provided.


The club proposes to subsidise the trip for members.

Number of Paying Passengers Travelling
Price Per Person
25+ £315
30+ £290
35+ £275
40+ 265
Single room Supplement £110


I have enclosed a suggested itinerary for the group but you may have some more ideas of your own. As the hotel is in a central position, you would have an advantage of being able to use your time in Bruge well.

If you think that these details are acceptable for the group, we would need to confirm the booking. For this we would need to collect a non-refundable deposit of £50. This will allow us to reserve rooms at the hotel, book the ferry and reserve the coach for the group. This is not an extra payment, but one that will be taken off the final balance payment. The individual deposits to collect from the group, within eight weeks of confirming the booking would be £35.00 per person.
